1. Be Definite
You should ensure you’re as definite as possible. From goals, options to strategies, define what you really want.
Define your goals, set time-bound goals. Have a plan you strategically follow. Tony Robbins said that a dream without a plan is just a wish. He’s right about that.
Always ask yourself:
What really do I want?
Where do I see myself in the next [ ] years?
When am I going to stop this?
These questions will help you see the end of the point you are now. Try to answer them in the best clear way you can.
My own answer to the last question is, “I’m not stopping till the end.” Maybe you tried guessing what the end was? Till I become a world-class success.
2. Learn always
You can’t know what you don’t learn, but you can learn what you don’t know. Be open to learning all the time. Attend seminars, take classes, take courses.
Give quality time to learn your art and what you do.
If you love what you do, you should go learn from the best about it.
Check out how the success in it have strived and thrived through to success. Becoming a world-class success requires your sacrifice to learn, to learn all the time about your dreams, and how you can be a world best at it.
3. Practice intensely
This step is where you put to use what you’ve learned. The practical room is the moment you begin to engage your creativity.
It’s in practice that you input your own uniqueness and creativity into your art. You’re already unique, don’t try to be. Your uniqueness naturally comes out when you give yourself to intense practice.
It’s like preparing to perform when there’s no event.
You can grab opportunities well only when you’re prepared for it. Who knows? Maybe it’s just another one more chance to present your best that would launch you into the limelight of success. Don’t stop practicing your art until you become the best at it.

4. Discipline yourself
Indiscipline hinders the art to learn and practice always. Discipline is when you say things and do them. It means you keep your words.
Stay true to your daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly goals. When you achieve little goals within the time frame you’ve set, you’d have done more than you imagine when you accumulate them into years of 5 or 10.
Instead of trying to do a great thing quickly, start where you are with what you have.
Break your great success goal into tiny workloads required to get where you want to be. Carry out these tasks always as you expect to become a world-class success in your art.
5. Be Committed
Your trials failed. Nobody cared about your attempts. And you’re told you can’t do any better with what you’re doing. You feel tears well up your eyes. What will you do?
Be committed to the same thing. Don’t think negatively. Think like, “for every one person who rejects my work, there are ten people who accept it.”
That’s energetic right. That’s the way to be committed.
Refuse to be dejected and work your best to become the best in your field. Change every negative influence around you for vibrant, positive ones that will help you stay committed to becoming a world-class success.
6. Be patient
Time counts. How much time you give matters a lot to what you’ll achieve. You need to be patient and consistent with your art.
In the face of the challenges that come your way, be patient. Continue to pull the strings no matter what you face. Patiently expect the best.
